THE RECRUITING SERGEANT SYSTEM. COST OF RECRUITING VERY HIGH. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

THE RECRUITING SERGEANT SYSTEM. COST OF RECRUITING VERY HIGH. One of the arguments in favour of the compulsory system of enlistment is that the cost of obtaining recruits under the voluntary system is much too high. This is what the Queensland Recruiting Committee, in its last, report, says about the recruiting sergeant system. The report is its own commentary : — The recruiting sergeant system has, of course, gone hand in hand with our organisation of this census cards. ; When we were first instructed to put recruiting sergeants on, the cards were not ready for. investigation, consequently, we found it difficult to keep the men at specific work ; also it was not an easy matter to select, practically at a moment's notice, a large staff of men thoroughly well fitted to handle such a novel and difficult; work as the recruiting sergeant's. The consequence was ' that the . recruiting sergeant system incurred a certain amount of censure from the general public, and. a reputation so estab...

OPPOSITION TO THE WAR LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

OPPOSITION TO THE WAR LOAN. J The Queensland Recruiting Committee, in their last' report, said that they were sorry that a certain amount of opposition was manifest to the Commonwealth War Loan. The Chairman of a certain Shire Council stated that he would not subscribe to it, because the Commonwealth were lending money to the State to enable the State to embark on business enterprises in opposition to private enterprise.

COL. DEAN AND OPPOSITION TO R.S.A. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

COL DEAN AND OPPOSITION TO R.S.A. A statement has appeared in the Press, by Col. Dean, a representative at the R.S.A. Congress, from South Australia, to the effect that the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National I-eague ?were in opposition to the Returned Soldiers' Association. Such a statement by Col. Dean is preposterous on the face of it, and we believe that if Col. Dean had made investigations for his own knowledge and information, he would never have made such a statement. It is to be hoped that Col. Dean will be gentlemanly enough to ?withdraw such remarks, as they create a bad 'impression where such an impression is unnecessary. We re-iterate once again, and hope this will be final, that the constitutions of the two parties are totally different. The one is purely for returned soldiers, as a social institution, while the other is for returned soldiers and their supporters, and anyone other than those who are shirking their duty to their country, who agree ?with us, and are ...

"THE NATIONAL LEADER." [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

'THE NATIONAL LEADER.' From time immemorial, it has been almost a tradition on the part of the great British public to forget and practically ignore the ' men broke in our wars.' It is a truism that the nation has a very short memory ; as instance the attitude of the people to those gallant men who gave their lives in the struggle betwixt Briton and Boer. One of our sweetest singers wrote of the historic Eland's River, — ' On Australia's page for ever. we have written iilanas Kiver, ? yune true, we wrote it in letters of blood ; but its place on Australia's page has been dyed crimson with the records of many greater and bloodier conflicts. Australians quite easily forgot the men who went to South Africa, and it is not too much to say that they would forget the heroes who gave their lives on Galhpoli's rugged slopes, for the honour and liberty of this great country. But we, the returned members of that glorious band of brothers, do not intend that the people shall forget. We did not ...

RETURNED SOLDIERS' ASSOCIATION SAYS NO POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

RETURNED SOLDIERS' ASSOCIATION SAYS NO POLITICS. A meeting of the above Association was held in the Temperance Hall, on- Friday night last. An interesting debate took place on the question of whether the Returned Soldiers' Association should challenge the right of Mr. Finlayson, the member for Brisbane, to occupy his seat in the' Federal House. Some heat was shown by several of the members in dealing with the political aspect of this subject. It was Dointed out clearlv bv the speakers that it was contrary to the constitu tion of the R.S.A., under which they obtained their membership, to debate the question of Mr. Finlayson's right to retain his seat. It was shown that it was impossible for the R.S.A. to challenge Mr. Finlayson's right without entering into the political arena. These arguments seemed most convincing, as an overwhelming majority of the members were of the opinion that they could not challenge his right, as they were a non-political organisation. It was, therefore, res...

RECRUITING COMMITTEES SAY CONSCRIPTION IS DESIRED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

RECROillNG^OlWMITTEES SAY CONSCRIPTION IS DESIRED. As an assurance that conscription is not regarded as a national catastrophe by the people of this State, the following extract from the report of the Queensland Recmiting Committee is significant : — Shortly after the last general meeting of -this Committee the demand for conscription began to be insistent, and committees were threatening to 'down tools' in several districts. Whereas, we felt that the steady decline in recmiting under the voluntary system was forcing upon the country the need for more drastic measures, we realised that we were in existence simply because the voluntary system was the policy of the. time, and we deemed it our duty to exhort committees by every means possible, to redouble their efforts under the present system, rather than embarass the Government, by advo cating the policy which we deemed the Government = might ' have good reasons for not instituting immediately. In order, however, to obtain the utmost...

k RETURNED SOLDIERS AND PATRIOTS' NATIONAL LEAGUE. AND THE R.S.A. ? NO OPPOSITION. There are some members of the Returned Soldiers' Association who are under a grave misapprehension if tiiey for one moment think ? tliat the Returned Soldiers a!nd Patriots' National League is opposed to them on any grounds what ever. The two organisations.are run on completely different lines. T/ie one is directly non-political, with its aims mainly social. On the other' hand, the Returned Soldiers and. Patriots National; League is' a political body, and its members joined on the clear understanding. The R.S. and P.N. League recognise that the R.S.A. has a great future, so long as tlie members confine themselves , to the lines on which they obtained their support, namely, that they were not to interfere with jxiliticai 'matters. .

PREFERENCE TO RETURNED SOLDIERS. MINISTER FOR CUSTOMS FAVOURABLY INCLINED. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

PREFERENCE TO RETURNEDJSOLDIERS. MINISTER FOR CUSTOMS FAVOURABLY INCLINED. Hurrah ! the Minister for Customs, Mr. Tudor, is with the returned soldier in the matter of preference in his Department. Naturally, the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League is not anxious to have returned men given prefer ence through sentiment, but all other things being equal, the returned soldier should certainly have preference over the man who stays at home. The Queensland Recruiting Committee is still up against the actions of the unions regarding returned soldiers, who are endeavouring to secure employ ment in private businesses. Until the unions fall into line with the Government offices, it is a question of preference to unionists first ; and'- this will be a sore point amongst returned men. .The R.S. and P.N. League is pleased to note that.-siich a vital question to the returned man . is'.being so whole-heartedly taken up by the Q.R-.O; but it must be also borne in mind that; a Jarge num...

A CAMPAIGN OF LIES. EXTREME UNIONISTS A SERIOUS FACTOR. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

A CAMPAIGN OF LIES. EXTREME UNIONISTS A SERIOUS FACTOR. There seems to have been an organised campaign - .of lies . in some districts, particularly the big ?industrial centres — lies that would have the effect of prejudicing recruiting if given wide-spread .currency— apparently . engineered through some particular source. The influence of the extreme .section of trade unionists has also been a serious factor. It does not appear by any means, that the . majority of Trade Unionists have any desire to prejudice recruiting ; but the influence of the noisy minority has been very considerable in the industrial centres. When such a responsible body as the Queensland Recruiting Committee makes such a direct state .ment as the above, it is evident that even, such a drastic' measure as conscription is none too severe.

SHORTAGE OF MEN. WHAT THE Q.R.C. SAYS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

SHORTAGE OF MEN. WHAT THE Q.R.C. SAYS. ' - After repeated requests, we were finally informed, six weeks ago, that the Commonwealth should supply 11,800 reinforcements per' month, which means, after allowing for a 10 per 'cent, wantage, that Queensland, on a population basis, should Supply at least 1,800 men per month. Our actual enlistments are now well under 1,000 per month, in spue ui aw our eiions to Keep uie ijgurcs up. It would appear, however, from comparison witli the Southern States,, that the decline is general, and due to a prime cause. We have kept in close touch with all our local committees, a close check has been kept on all our recruiting sergeants, who have been required to submit detailed reports at least once per week. Posters have been displayed throughout the State, recruiting marches have been organised in the big cities, including a night recruiting march of school children. We ? have sent the best available speakers to country districts, to assist them at thei...

NO PEACE UNTIL—! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 15 September 1916

NO PEACE UNTIL- ? -! At the moment of writing, the 'peacc twitter ings ' have become positive chirps. Before the reader has this paper in his hands, the. Reichstag will have. submitted to; the demands-of the'Gennari ' Socialist Party, which has long been planning to introduce a peace discussion. It is said — quite erroneously, of course — that this' interpellation is necessitated by the fact that in Germ&tiy nobody understands why the enemy, after their military failures and their, diplomatic defeats in the Balkans, have not yet begun peace negotiations. That applies, naturally,, only to. the people en masse— the authorities know quite well why such negotiations have not been started. And it i. just here that we wish to put in a word of warning These rumours of peace are dangerous. For, understand tliis, if any sort of peace were concluded now, it would mean that Germany had won tlie war ! Germany took every crael. advantage she could a£ the outbreak of hostilities..
